Relationships and Sex Education
As you may be aware, from September 2020 the Department for Education made Relationships Education and Health Education (Primary) and Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (Secondary) compulsory in all schools.
We have been working hard to audit and review our PSHE, Science and Computing curriculums to ensure that they incorporate the knowledge identified in the Department for Education guidance and legislation.
As we have historically taught Sex Education as part of both our PSHE and Science curriculums, little alteration has had to be made. However, ahead of academic year 2021-2022, we would like to introduce you to our proposed curriculum and Relationships and Sex Education Policy (draft format)
In addition to both the curriculum overview and the draft policy, we have created a PowerPoint to accompany these documents and provide additional information for parents/carers about this topic.
All three documents are available to download and view below along with a range of other useful resources which we feel will provide you with a better insight of statutory changes. Listed resources which you may wish to access and read include:
- The Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education Statutory Guidance
- Understanding Relationships and Health Education in your Child’s Primary School: A Guide for parents.
- School Commitment to RSE
By providing you with the attached documentation, we begin a period of consultation. Your input and views are greatly valued. In order to provide your feedback to this consultation, we would like to ask you to complete the RSE Parent Consultation Survey by clicking tab on the left hand side of this page.
